General Discussion / AntiX installed on HD does not boot
« on: June 28, 2019, 12:16:54 pm »
I had AntiX installed but ran into an annoying scrollbar issue. Could not fix it. Tried to install another OS, but booting from live USB stick did not work. Could not uninstall AntiX, not even with GParted from its own live USB stick. Managed to uninstall with GParted on an AntiX live USB stick.

But, with the antiX live USB GParted recognised the current antiX partitions, so I proceeded to delete them. That seemed to have gone well, but ….

I tried to reinstall antiX (BIOS settings: secure boot – off, Legacy booting on), and marked it for Auto-install, it threw up a message that /sda1 in still in use. So Iset it to custom install, and set the root to the eMMC drive, boot in root, /home in root, swap separate. It asked if everything was allowed to be overwritten, which I confirmed.
The installation completed and at the end asked me if I wanted to reboot (if so, take out the installation medium). Having confirmed that, it rebooted but then got stuck on a black screen with some text, and the message that no bootable device was detected, and to please insert the disc? Huh?

I am completely confused now, don’t understand what I did wrong, and am frustrated with all this. I probably did some things wrong, so I accept my stupidity for that, but is there anything to correct this and get the computer to boot correctly into antiX, hopefully without my earlier issues of trackpad/scrollbar sensitivity. In fact, as things stand now I would like to install a hassle free OS.

My computer is a 64-bit Lenovo Yoga with a 32 GB eMMC and 2 GB of memory.

I have VC 1.23 installed in Linux Mint 19.1 XFCE 64-bit.

When I start my computer, launch VC, suspend the computer, then de-suspend it, VC is dismounted if the suspension lasted several hours. If it is a short suspension it does not happen.
What could cause this?

General Help & Advice / Lost network icon & internet access
« on: April 25, 2019, 05:23:11 pm »
After a 4.18 kernel upgrade yesterday I lost the network icon as well as internet access, WiFi is gone.
When I connect the ethernet cable it does not get detected either. I had installed GParted but funnily enough it does not launch anymore.
I have Mint 19.1 XFCE is dual boot with Windows. Before the problem I could see all the Windows files (NTFS), now I can't anymore; a USB stick is not detected.
Some other things that have disappeared and that I am discovering bit by bit:
* Synaptic
* Rubbish bin

I tried
Code: [Select]
sudo service network-manager stop
rm /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state
service network-manager restart

No result.
I cannot believe I have to do a fresh reinstallation. The computer is working fine in that I have access to my files and can use them. When I use the live USB stick the network is visible & works fine, Wifi included.
Any suggestions?

General Discussion / Timeshift GUI does not detect snapshot
« on: February 16, 2019, 12:43:38 pm »
I made an initial snapshot with TS on a 31 GB USB stick. Thunar confirms it's there, the TS GUI says in the borttom right hand corner there is 21 GB free available, but the snapshot is not shown in the GUI. Therefore I could not restore it if I needed to.
What's more, if I click on create it starts creating another initial snapshot.
Any suggestions?

General Help & Advice / Booting Linux Mint 19.1 XFCE slow
« on: February 12, 2019, 06:22:16 pm »
I recently installed LM on my hard disk and was amazed at how quickly it booted - seconds. That was the 1st time, but after the 2nd or 3rd time the boot slowed to minutes.
Any suggestions?
